Our favorite “Shop Local” stores – Gift Guide
It’s holiday shopping time and we are here to help you find great gifts for the whole family.
We love to support local businesses so we’re highlighting artisans and craftspeople from the Plano area who have shops on Etsy.com.
This post contains affiliate links to the Etsy shops.
At Plano Moms, we always like to support local businesses, but this year especially – we think you’ll agree – supporting local artists is smart for four reasons.
- Small businesses are the backbone of the economy, but more than that, they’re our friends, neighbors and family.
- Shipping times could have delays this year, putting holiday deliveries at risk. Problem solved when you shop local – shorter distances to ship mean faster arrival times.
- Most of the artists listed here are Moms who, above all else, are hand-making products even with kids (many at home) and other jobs in these crazy times. We salute you, Mamas!
- You’ll get a unique gift from one of these artists, perfect for those on your list who have everything!
Thank you for joining us to Shop Local.
